In A Day in Capernaum, Franz Delitzsch uses the earliest Jewish accounts of Jesus and the Gospel to imagine what it would have been like to experience his ministry. The intent was to provide a picture of intimacy with Jesus that reflects the character of Christ seen in the Gospels. The text recreates the journey to Capernaum from Jerusalem, Jesus’ healing of the paralytic let down through a house roof, a conversation with Mary, and ends with Jesus speaking to the multitudes on the Sea of Galilee. The text also includes a sketch of Franz Delitzsch’s life and work provided by the translator.

Delitzsch is a Christian, a scholar, and a poet. These three leading features of the almost myriad-minded Leipzig professor are most harmoniously blended in the volume here translated . . . it is reverently imaginative, historically informing, geographically illuminative.

A System of Biblical Psychology

  • Author: Franz Delitzsch
  • Translator: Robert Ernest Wallis
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Series: Clark’s Foreign Theological Library

A System of Biblical Psychology builds off of nearly 40 years of work and Delitzsch’s dissertation on the elements of the nature of man, particularly “whether the soul, so far as it is distinguished from the spirit, belongs by its nature to matter or to spirit.” The text addresses ideas and concepts Delitzsch discusses in his other books, but emphasizes the distinctions between soul and spirit found in Scripture. Recognizing and comprehending the simultaneous unity and distinctions between soul and spirit, he believes, is essential to understanding the psychology of Scripture. Delitzsch provides a thorough introduction to understanding biblical psychology and a multitude of daring ideas.

—Reverend Robert Ernest Wallis, senior priest-vicar of Wells Cathedral

This admirable volume ought to be carefully read by every thinking clergyman . . . we know no work which is better calculated as a guide to minds already settled on lines of sound theological principle, than [A System of Biblical Psychology].

Literary Churchman

However different the psychology of the present day may be from that which Professor Delitzsch finds in the Bible, it cannot be denied that his work is both suggestive and helpful to all students of man, and to all students of the Scriptures, but especially to students of both.


For profound acquaintance with the letter of Scripture, interpreted by a spirit of rare metaphysical acuteness, we suspect Dr. Delitzsch’s treatise on Biblical Psychology has few parallels in modern theology.

About Franz Delitzsch

Franz Julius Delitzsch (1813–1890) was a German Lutheran theologian and Hebraist. He was a professor of theology at the University of Rostock from 1846 to 1850, at the University of Erlangen until 1867, and then at the University of Leipzig until his death. He is most known for translating the New Testament into Hebrew. To this day, the translation remains the standard Hebrew New Testament and a mark of Delitzsh’s compassion for the Jewish people. Throughout his life, Delitzsch defended and advocated for the Jewish community, and in 1880, he established the Institutum Judaicum in Leipzig to train missionaries to work among Jews. He also wrote a number of commentaries.
